2 Tablespoons Paprika
1/2 Tablespoons Coriander
1Tablespoon Chili Powder
1/4 teaspoon Cayenne
1 teaspoon Chinese 5 Spice
1/2 teaspoon Cumin
1/4 teaspoon Cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon Nutmeg
2 Tablespoons Kosher Salt
8 Tablespoons Brown Sugar
1 teaspoon White Pepper
1/2 teaspoon Black Pepper
2 teaspoons Oregano
1/2 teaspoon Cardamom
1/2 teaspoon Kosher Salt (or to taste)
1/2 teaspoon White or Black Pepper
Liberty Duck Breast (1 package to serve 4)
Split the attached breasts for 4 pieces total and trim off the loose skin and fat (set aside, and see below for use). Make a dry rub. Score the skin with a few cross hatches, just skin deep, and rub with spices all over the duck breasts. Fry skin side down to crisp in a heavy pan to render the fat and crisp the skin. At this point, you can set aside the duck for up to an hour or refrigerate to finish cooking later. To finish cooking, place breasts (skin side up) in a preheated 500 degree oven or in preheated pan for 4 or 5 minutes. We suggest serving Liberty Duck Breasts medium rare. Let rest 5 minutes, then serve.
Liberty Duck Legs
Apply dry rub of your choosing to legs. Bake at 425 degrees for 1 hour and 15 minutes.
